  3. 3. Course Proposal Submitted to the Graduate Council by The School of Computational Sciences 1. COURSE NUMBER AND TITLE: NEUR 689 – Topics in Neuroscience Prerequisite: Permission of instructor Catalog Description: Selected topics in neuroscience reflecting specialized areas or new subfields that are not covered in fixed-content neuroscience courses. Course may be repeated for credit as needed. 2. COURSE JUSTIFICATION: Course Objectives: To provide students with an opportunity to cover special topics in the field of neuroscience. The course can cover basic or advanced fundamental science, as well as novel or interdisciplinary subfields. The course (1) prepares the student to undertake graduate research in neuroscience and related areas, (2) prepares the student to participate in professional activities in this field of study, (3) broadens the student’s background in the general field of neuroscience, and (4) prepares the student to explore interdisciplinary applications and collaborative research in neuroscience. Course Necessity: This course provides key underpinnings for graduate research in neuroscience. This is the only NEUR course that is designed to address the wide-ranging interdisciplinary issues and collaborative aspects of modern research in neuroscience. Course Relationship to Exiting Programs: The proposed course primarily supports the Neuroscience Ph.D. program. Some graduate students in the Biopsychology Ph.D. program and some advanced students in the Biopsychology M.S. may also find the course beneficial, depending on the specific topic offered. The proposed course will provide essential content to students in those degree programs with an academic focus on neuroscience. This type of integration between the biological sciences and psychology is directly relevant to the degree requirements for these programs. Course Relationship to Existing Courses: No equivalent course currently exists at GMU. 3. APPROVAL HISTORY: NA 4. SCHEDULING AND PROPOSED INSTRUCTORS: Semester of Initial Offering: Spring 2006 Proposed Instructor: Neuroscience faculty members. 5. TENTATIVE SYLLABUS: (attached)
